RNC dealing with several motor vehicle violation offences

A 49-year-old man is facing impaired driving charges today following a traffic stop in Conception Bay South.
The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary stopped a vehicle on the C.B.S. Highway around 6:15 on Sunday evening.
The driver failed the breathalyzer and was charged for that offense as well as impaired driving.
He was released to appear in court at a later date and his vehicle was impounded.
Earlier in the day, the RNC attended a call in the centre area of St. John’s to deal with theft from a business.
A 19-year-old man was charged with theft under $5,000 for the incident. It was also discovered the man had an outstanding arrest warrant which saw him taken to lockup and held for a court appearance Monday morning.
The RNC was also kept busy with three separate stops dealing with motor vehicle violations.
At 2:25 p.m., a 22-year-old man was stopped on Bay Bulls Road where it was discovered he was operating a vehicle without insurance and registration. He was charged for both offenses.
In addition, he was charged with two counts of breaching court orders. He was taken to lockup and held pending a Monday court appearance and his vehicle was impounded.
At 11:20 p.m., the RNC charged a 36-year-old woman for operating a vehicle while her license was suspended. She was released but her vehicle was impounded.
In a third stop that occurred early Monday morning, the RNC stopped a vehicle driven by a 26-year-old man on St. Thomas Line in Paradise.
He didn’t have a valid driver’s license or insurance. He was released following the incident but his vehicle was impounded.
